    I bought a used fisher four pin V plow controller to use with my wideout, its the joystick not the handheld. works fine except the bottom corner functions (controlling each wing separately) do not have any response. All the rest work fine. I know its not the plow since my western handheld controller can control the wings separate. So my question is did I buy a bad controller or is there some compatibility issue.

    Thanks.

    That joystick controller IS for a wideout or xls? Didn't think they made joysticks for expandable plows

    They do. I have a western one that came with the plow that stopped working. Identical to the fisher one minus the logo
